Severe Torture

Brutal Death Metal - Netherlands

Severe Torture Band

Brutal. Death. Metal.

These words define the unique sound of the extreme metal that SEVERE TORTURE is known for since 1997. SEVERE TORTURE has been a constant force over the last 25 years, in presence as well as in their line-up. Their debut album “FEASTING ON BLOOD” was hailed as an instant classic in the early beginnings of the new wave of brutal death metal in 2001.

Ever since the release of their debut the band has toured extensively. Playing shows in North and South America, Mexico and their home continent Europe in support of the 5 albums they have released over the last 25 years.

Since SEVERE TORTURE is about quality not quantity, they have been laying low since their latest album “SLAUGHTERED”, released in 2010. While still playing shows for the love of the genre, the band was in search of the brutality and energy needed for the material of a new SEVERE TORTURE album. This soul-searching led to the amical split with original drummer Seth in 2018, who was replaced 2018 by Damien Kerpentier. With renewed energy and focus the band started with a clean slate by writing new material, arguably their best material to this day.

“FISTING THE SOCKETS” will be the first feat of SEVERE TORTURE in 12 years. The band has re-signed their deal with Season of Mist and if it wasn’t for a certain pandemic this upcoming EP “FISTING THE SOCKETS” was probably released much earlier.

SEVERE TORTURE is currently recording their full-length album, to be released early 2023 through Season of Mist Records.

Line-up:

  • Dennis Schreurs : Vocals
  • Damien Kerpentier : Drums
  • Thijs van Laarhoven : Guitar
  • Marvin Vriesde : Guitar
  • Patrick Boleij : Bass
